Phantom of the Opera - Folketeatret Oslo
Opera director Stephen Barlow and choreographer Ewan Jones are inspired choices for this production, as they both have great experience in the opera field. Barlow, for his park has done a truly commendable job of enchanting the humour in a lot of scenes involving the Opera Managers and the ensemble; I can’t recall a production of Phantom where the silent roles of the stagehands got as many laughs.
